Early this morning I was cycling my heart out in the gym and a colleague came in. We had the lovliest discussion about how relationships have the power to help us recognize our deepest values. For me personally, they have helped me understand just how important my spiritual life and philosophical quest is. As I was toweling off and about to leave the gym to shower my colleague said, “Sometimes the hardest journey you have to make in life is the 35 centimeters from your brain to your heart.” You know, deep down we always know the answer. Our hearts always know. It is just a matter of whether or not we listen.
